My band, The Fret Boys, have written four songs, but none of them have lyrics. I have written lyrics for Second Chance, but they aren't in the File Information bit. Anyway, here they are:

The Authority Song (http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/m/misc_unsigned_bands/the_fret_boys_-_the_authority_song_power_tab.htm)
Second Chance (http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/m/misc_unsigned_bands/the_fret_boys_-_second_chance_power_tab.htm)
Look Back In Anger (http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/m/misc_unsigned_bands/the_fret_boys_-_look_back_in_anger_power_tab.htm)
Control The Media Control The Minds (http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/m/misc_unsigned_bands/the_fret_boys_-_control_the_media_control_the_minds_power_tab.htm)


I will go through with that Crit 4 Crit Crap that goes on around here. Any suggestions for improvement would be accepted.

the authority song : i didn't like the leads at the end of the verses, they don't sound quite well, work on them but keep them.

Second Chance: i liked the catchy chorus, but hearing powerchords for 2:23 gets kind of annoying

Look Back In Anger: way too repetitive and boring.

Control The Media Control The Minds: the one i liked the most because it wasnt about strummed powerchords, at list this time u used arpeggios, but still POWERCHORDS.

i dont want to sound like an ass or anything, but i would recommend u and your band to really try to expand musically and write songs with not only powerchords, even if you are a punk band. your songs may be catchy but the powerchord over-use kinds of gets you at one point or the other, and makes all your songs sound the same. If you don't want to stay away from powerchords, i hope yo've got a good bassline to reduce the repetitiveness. Cheers :peace:

mind critting mines? :D

The Authority song is a Jimmy Eat World song and a good one at that so id say change the name, and Look Back In Anger people may think is that Oasis song. ;)

Yeah. I agree wholeheartedly with rodrigomierh, try to expand your sound and whatnot. All 4 of these songs were kinda boring and fairly bland. Powerchords are cool and all, but there is more to guitar then just them. Experiment. You're bound to get something. :D

Crit one of mine if you have the chance?

John Mellencamp > Jimmy Eat World

and yea dude, your names are too generic. That actually does sometime ruin the whole song.
